Gratitude

Dorothy Shain

This week is special. On September 1st, it has officially been 2 years since I left my desk job to pursue my calling of art. Yes, it was terrifying & yes, some days I am still terrified.  Am I going to succeed? Will I be able to be financially stable? Will people like what I produce? What if they don’t? I can ask myself questions all day, send myself into a state of frenzy OR I can take a moment to focus on -‘gratitude.’ -

Gratitude is the quality of being thankful. When I look back over the past two years, I have so many positive feelings for the people, places & incredible experiences this artistic journey has put in my path. I feel forever lucky to wake up each morning and pursue something I love. Yes, constant hustle & endless brainstorming are involved to keep things moving, but that is what fuels me.

So, I am going to do something I don’t typically like to do and something I feel like we, as humans, don’t do often enough. I am going to give myself a big pat on the back for being brave. You heard it right. If I had never mustered the courage to make art my full time career, I would not have experienced the immense feeling of gratitude I have for each one of you who support me daily nor would I appreciate the mistakes I have made, the successes I have experienced & the life of an artist.

For me, it all comes down to two words. Thank You. Your love and support are the sole reasons I am able to do what I do.
